JA Inspire is an interactive career exploration program presented by Junior Achievement of South Florida in partnership with educators and industry leaders. In February of 2019, nearly 2,000 8th-12th grade students were introduced to high growth/high wage career fields including: construction, health, marine, finance, automotive, technology, hospitality, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, military services and more.
“JA Inspire is designed to have a deep impact on the students as they begin to explore their future career choices. Before the day of the simulation, students participate in 3 hours of career readiness curriculum. This combination or classroom curriculum and interactive simulation is what makes JA programs unique,” said Laurie Sallarulo, President/CEO.
